Serves 5 (2 burgers each) | Prep Time | Cook Time 15 minutes


2 1/2 pounds ground turkey
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Pinch cayenne pepper
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil

Make the Burgers: Mix all the ingredients together with your hands, except the oil, in a bowl.

Divide the meat mixture into 10 equal-sized patties.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, cook the burgers, turning once, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes per side.(A instant-read thermometer inserted in the center of the thickest burger should read at least 165 degrees F.)

Divide the burgers among plates--2 to a plate. Dollop each serving with mayonnaise and stack lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickle on top. (I also like to add hot sauce as a topping)

Discovered this while watching Food Network one day shortly after finding out my father had developed diabetes. You can eat it with or without a bun and its a pretty quick fix. The original recipe calls for it to be cooked in a skillet, but I like to throw them on my George Foreman Grill. Its been a staple in my parents' house for about 5 years now! :)

Tried this recipe and it was perfect! Thank You
